No, it wasn’t just another Sunday. Pope Francis I gave his first Angelus today as pope. Thousands gathered in St. Peter’s Square.

Earlier this morning, after mass at St. Anna’s church, Pope Francis I ducked into the crowd.

Amazing. While the morally bankrupt are spewing vicious hatred, Pope Francis I is showing his humility and his love for humankind.

More photos of the massive crowd, assembled for the pope’s first Angelus. Estimates have the crowd at 150,000.

And some beautiful and wise words from Pope Francis I today.
